Squeak the Squirrel
This is one of the AV Geeks favorite films, mostly because Squeak is somewhat of a working class hero who, in spite of what obstacles "the Man" puts in his way, always perseveres.

Subject: I Call It A Chipmunk
I never knew chipmunks can be so people friendly. But just present them once or twice with a peanut and they will be there everyday waiting for you to show up. Yes they can learn.
Cute intriguing film. Doesn't surprise me what squeak can learn..

While a pleasent and jovial narrator describes the action-- much like you see in most nature films of the 1950s-- the first experiment is to show how Squeak would react to a mirror. Next, we have a young girl first feeding Squeak from her hand and then from a couple boxes (clearly violating the park rule not to feed the animals...).
Afterward, we move to a labratory, where we see Squeak in his cage/nest. He runs through a increasingly complext series of tests that involve trying to get a peanut from a tube or a string. While the lab setting is a bit unsettling and would not be tolerated today, it is still fascinating to see how much problem solving capacity animals have. Despite the slightly condescending narrator, this film remains a good demonstration of animal intelligence.
Bonus points for a really clean print quality and vibrant colors that add to the enjoyment of the film.
